Person Details

Update

I am the VP of Products for CNET (a division of CBS Interactive). I’m a seasoned product executive with over 15 years experience building and marketing consumer electronics and digital media companies. I’ve built products with a passion for creating delightful experiences both in hardware and software/Web/mobile applications. I possess a unique blend of understanding the experiences, technology, and marketing needed to make great products.

At Viggle, I led product strategy, mapping out a vision amidst a TV industry facing tremendous change and upheaval. I joined in January 2014 through the acquisition of my startup Dijit (where I raised over $2M). I’ve since set product roadmap, streamlined process, and managed multiple teams in efforts to unite multiple product lines.

Prior to Dijit, I ran Stage Two, a product marketing consultancy that served companies by improving product experiences and executing successful go-to-market strategies. Key clients included Boxee, VUDU, DivX, Clicker, Dropcam, Waze, Sonos, Bug Labs and other great consumer technology companies.

I was the first VP of Product Management for Sling Media, makers of the award-winning Slingbox (acquired by DISH in 2007). I was responsible for the Slingbox from concept to launch, taking the founders’ vision and shaping it into a working product. This included building all original SlingPlayer PC/Mobile software, and the hardware.

As an entrepreneur, I’ve built and sold several startups, including * Legacy Locker, the first online will company, acquired by PasswordBox in 2013. * Nudgemail , the only all-email-based reminder system that works with every email service without any downloads or plugins. * Mediabolic, a connected home software platform where I designed numerous streaming media devices for HP, Pioneer, Denon, and other CE companies (acquired by Rovi in 2006).

I also sat on the steering committees for DLNA and UPnP AV. I have a BS from Carnegie Mellon University, am a father of 3, and am passionate about sustainability, board games, and hockey. Go Habs
